About this Exhibitor / Bio:
My goal is to enjoy what I do, and let my curiosity inspire my designs. I combine natural materials including mica, lava and anthracite with pearls, gems and rough opal. I use them to create work which refers to natural forms, such as vines or seed pods. These diverse materials require a combination of goldsmithing techniques and non-traditional engineering for me to turn them into a piece of finished jewelry. Much of what I feel is best in my work comes from appreciating nature, maybe because we all share its inspiration.
